ImpactBank's the Kickass Koach is hosted by Roxanne "Rox" Bartel. Rox uses stories and tips to support your thinking and exploration to help you navigate your career and life.

Rox is a Speaker, Coach and Workshop Facilitator who started ImpactBank and the Kickass Koach podcast to support leaders as they transitioned into leadership roles. Recently Rox had occasion to accept a few millennial clients and has become passionate about making her work to support them in their quest to build a career that inspires them while honouring their values.

Rox is setting out on a new journey starting in the summer of 2018 to build a system of workshops and group coaching opportunities to use social learning approaches in a coach-like style for professional men and women in their 30's. These systems help you uncover and redesign the patterns that have held you down. Together we'll be innovative and curious, mindful and open, solution and action oriented. Being #selfaware is just the start of the process AND it leads to a GREAT future.

Speaking up boldly when members of the team OR even a client treat people contrary to your values is a decision you must make as a leader. Just espousing certain beliefs in your mission or vision statement or including them in your published list of values is NOT enough. Leaders of substance will speak up and call out bad behavior including tasteless jokes, inappropriate name calling or touching. 

In this Globe and Mail article, as I mention in the episode, the author asserts that comments or incidents that may, at first, seem harmless, if not handled thoughtfully by leadership, can snowball into bigger challenges and the creation of a toxic culture. Get ahead of the situation and keep big issues from developing by handling them early and boldly.

Next week's FQT (Fall Quick Tip); the Hint:  everyone is shocked at what they are seeing or hearing, but everyone around them seems to believe it's normal so it's just easier to believe that too, so IT persists.

Hey while you're here, learn a bit about the new course I've been testing in late 2017 called it takes Grit. I've been contracted to deliver the basics of this course at a few professional conferences and professional associations in both  2017 and 2018 and I plan to deliver the course in both classroom environments and on-line later in 2018.

How can I help you on-board your middle or senior leaders more successfully?

ON YOUR MARK...™ is ImpactBank's signature system for leaders in transition. 

Whether it's about systems or leadership skills, my mission is to help senior leaders make their workplace more productive, inclusive and innovative.

My Passion Initiative: to eradicate violence against women and girls in Canada is zeroing in starting Fall 2017 to improve gender-based conversations AND  make a dent in sexual harrasment in the workplace.

It turns out the infamous #GoogleMemo was just the beginning this year and my choice to focus on Sexual Harassment in the #RRT this fall and winter was prophet. Who knew the conversation about sexual misconduct in professional settings would erupt so fully this fall!?
